Wiruungga Organisation Inc.,
Not For Profit DGR Charity fund. ABN 44 971 703 487
The Wiruungga Organisation has developed as an Organisation to help bridge the gap between Australian Cultures.
At the Wiruungga Organisation we are working with the focus of improving the land and the lives of Australian people, both Indigenous Australians and people of all nationalities interested in improving their life, for now and for future generations.
For over nine years Wiruungga has traveled throughout Australia and to remote isolated communities offering support and much needed supplies to venerable indigenous and non-indigenous families and communities who often live in great poverty. We feel this is very important for these communities as access to many things that we take for granted are impossible without assistance.
The Wiruungga organisation is proud to be able to give assistance to remote and isolated families and communities throughout Australia.
The Wiruungga organisation supports and promotes education in the areas of health and social well being, with a strong stance on a drug and alcohol free lifestyle. We inspire young and old to reach their full potential in a nurturing drug and alcohol free environment, providing assistance and education to people in need. The Wiruungga organisation provides a safe environment away from distraction where people learn with guidance, self worth and with an understanding that every individual is valuable in society. We give them a sense of purpose. We also teach life without dependency (drug and alcohol free) at the same time educating in nutrition and health.
Other activities of Wiruungga organisation is in gathering and archiving traditional indigenous information, be it hunting gathering skills, indigenous languages, natural building, dreamtime stories, dance, the arts and much more.
At Wiruungga, we are working on archiving knowledge of various languages, cultures, dance, story telling, music and craft from indigenous Australian cultures and other cultures throughout the world. We believe it is important to keep indigenous culture and traditions alive well into the future. This provides a fabulous learning opportunity for all.
The Bunya Creek Sanctuary
We are establishing a native wildlife and bush sanctuary and maintaining our existing Koala habitats. With assistance of many helping hands we are working on caring for native plants, weed control, soil improvement and Permaculture methods and we welcome willing workers. Our activities also include planting out and cultivating bush tucker foods as a resource. With organic gardens developing, we aim to provide a food self-sufficiency for those who come to the Sanctuary. For visitors and residents, we use the natural habitat as an educational tool, being rich in natural resources and away from distractions of busy life. This land provides us with a powerful education base.
We are establishing working models for the growing of bush tucker, native plants used for the production of traditional medicines and nutritional food produce. We are also inviting selected Indigenous and knowledgeable people from communities around Australia to share knowledge of the plants, ceremony and processes involved.
